There is a chance this post won’t be very popular among all of you currently in your cookie, cake and pie comas. Nonetheless, today I want to show you how to make slow-cooked homemade applesauce.
But here’s what I love about this recipe: it’s stupid simple, 100% fresh and you can use it to use in your Holiday baking (applesauce makes a great replacement for sugar).

- apples (I used 9 small apples; 11 Jujube apples)
- sugar (I used just a little of the Organic Coconut Sugar)
- Peel and core your apples
- Place all apples in the slow cooker and fill with water to cover about 1/2 way up on the apples
- Cover and slow cook on low for about 5 hours (about 2-3 hours in, add a little more water)
- Drain water, and let the apples cool
- Place apples in a blender
- Puree the apples for just a second (Note: literally for just a second; I did it too long and they got too smooth -> unless you like it that way or are giving them to a baby)
- Add your “flavoring” as you wish (I used just a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut sugar)
And one more bonus for all of you who are in this sugar-laden coma: this will be very easy on your digestive system. I mean, unless you have SIBO, which is a whole other thing….
You will heal. I will help.
